My name is Tomáš Vala and I have studied for 5 years on Charles University in Prague on Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. I have nothing to do with physics but I cannot keep from mathematics - I'm a software specialist. I devote myself to computer graphics. I'm particulary interested in a computer vision, intelligent robotics, digital image processing, neural networks and other techniques for an image recognition.
Regarding this topic I have elaborated a thesis called Single-Image License Plate Recognition. The thesis covers an issue about an automatic licence plate recognition captured by a radar system used to monitor speed on highways in the emirate of Abu Dhabi (the United Arab Emirates).

We always returned really tired from every such camp but even more enriched. Small children can surprise you with their frankness and naturalness. It is a great pleasure to invent games for them when you see that they really like them.
